This Won’t End Well

The Army, having just court martialed Bergdahl, whose defense is mental illness, wants more Bergdahl by lifting the ban on recruiting people with diagnosed mental illnesses and behaviors. Just a thought, is this a screw to create a problem in 4-20 years, such as more suicides and homelessness among veterans? The VA is rather strict about health issues that existed before one enlists.

This story is about the Royal Navy. Our submariners don’t do anything of the sort. Never. Hell, we can’t even steer the boat.

    I don’t know how controversial this statement is, but in light of the mass shooting in Texas, I wouldn’t be surprised if more “fruitcakes” like that guy end up in military. That does not bode well for the military and america-at-large.

    No, it won’t. (And VMI16’s pending comment hits the nail on the head about the larger implications.)
